Description: Long before Europeans first arrived in the Western Reserve, Native Americans lived across Ohio. Using artifacts and immersive games, students will learn about the prehistoric peoples of Ohio, the daily life of Ohio’s historic indigenous communities, their first contact with Europeans moving west, and how Cleveland evolved from its founding to now.  

(Camp sessions are available on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9am-3:30pm. Campers may register for just one day, or multiple days, if interested in more than one topics. Please plan to bring a packed lunch to eat onsite at the museum.)
